"For me, the greatest benefit of ESADE’s Full-Time MBA was the international exposure. In fact, this was the main reason why I chose to study in Europe, and at ESADE in particular. Sharing, competing and living with 150 professionals from 48 countries is something that you can only do if you leave behind the comfort of your own country and culture. This was the most valuable learning experience for me. The programme’s other tangible benefits include teamwork, leadership and learning to build on diversity.
Right now, I am participating in Citibank’s CITIzens LatAm accelerated-growth programme for corporate banking and investment professionals. In this two-year programme, we switch to a new country and functional area every six months. Right now I’m working in the Mergers and Acquisitions team in Colombia, but my next assignment will probably be the Derivatives team in Brazil, followed by the Capital Markets team in New York. This entails much more responsibility than I had before. Citibank has given me an opportunity to be an agent of change, and every day I strive to become one."
